second term, if only he can overcome some major diplomatic hurdles. as the u.s. moved closer to military action, president obama interrupted his deliberation over syria to mark an historic milestone, the 50th anniversary of martin luter king's "i have a dream" speech. the words belonged to the ages. >> unmatched in our time. >> reporter: it was one of the only few public appearances for the president, who has little time to spend away from the white house. any decision to strike syria over the alleged use of chemical weapons is growing more complicated by the day. over at the u.n., syria's ambassador sounded the alarm and accused rebels of launching their own gas attacks. >> we are in a state of war, preparing for the worst scenario. >> accusing russia of blocking u.n. action. >> we cannot be held up in responding by russia's continued intrance jens at the united nations. >> the british may require the u.n. to present its evidence. >> it is understandable that people want to see what the u.n. inspectors say. >> reporter: a white house official sell the president is spending a lot of time
in for piers tonight. we want to well ccome our cnn viewers tonight in the u.s. and around the world there is breaking news in the show down with syria. president obama making a case for a military strike possibly. he says there is clear proof the regime was behind the use of deadly chemical weapons. the president also says he has not yet made a final decision on his military options, but he certainly appears to be moving closer and closer to using force. >> in no event are we considering any kind of military action that would involve boots on the ground, that would involve a long-term campaign, but we are looking at the possibility of a limited, narrow act that would help make sure that not only syria but others around the world understand that the international community cares about maintaining this chemical weapons ban. >> we'll have the very latest developments this hour including graphic video of a new chemical attack. and is the president doing the right thing if he goes at it alone? will it mean for america if he does? i'll talk to the former chief of the united nations weapon
if the syrian government uses chemical weapons to slaughter some of their own citizens, the united states will respond. if the u.s. doesn't respond right now, doesn't he look weak? >> well, i cannot subjectively feel out what other people will feel about the united states. what authority the president of the united states, any president of the united states has to draw a red line that implies that our military is going to be placed in harm's way, i don't think there's constitutional authority to do that and feel compelled without the approval of the congress to carry forth. so rhetoric and losing lives are not nearly as important as making certain that you do the action. so looking weak is not like losing lives, and anybody who has lost people in terms of these wars or intrusions, i know that they would agree with me. >> you served in the military, and you insist that before the u.s. gets involved again in military action around the world, the united states should reinstate the draft. it doesn't look like you've got a whole lot of support for that out there, but you've been raising this i
a worldwide travel alert for all u.s. citizens. it is taking the extraordinary precaution of closing 21 embassies and consulates across the middle east and africa. what are you finding out? >> credible and serious, it goes beyond that. u.s. officials telling us this is more, more than the normal stream of chatter they get about potential attacks. they have been following a stream for months now in yemen. in the last few days it grew. it became more mature, in their words. more specificity. that has led to the state department taking the action of shutting down the embassies across the region. there is particular concern about the u.s. embassy in yemen through about next tuesday. concerns about all u.s. embassies across the region. we are coming to a series of holy day as the islamic month of ramadan ends. they believe tensions will be rising. there is some difference of opinion within the u.s. intelligence community how much of this is just about yemen and how much is about the region as a whole, but no difference that it is very serious. >> the 3rd and 6th of august. those are critical
" with lawrence o'donnell. thanks for being with us tonight. have a great night. we'll be back with you tomorrow with steve schmidt. stay with us. >>> the phrasing has gone from little doubt to undeniable. syria and chemical weapons and what president obama is planning to do about it. >> the obama administration says there is very little doubt -- >> we believe there is very little doubt about culpability. >> the syrian government used chemical weapons. >> did a chemical weapons attack occur? >> what is before us today is real. >> the answer to that question is yes. >> president obama is weighing military options against syria. >> i have no affection for mr. assad. >> there is no solution as we have long made clear that includes assad. >> but at the same time i am less sure of the resistance. >> in that sense there's a big worry. >> should they let this chemical attack go unanswered? >> i do think action is going to occur. >> this morning a team of u.n. chemical weapons inspectors arrived in damascus. >> shots were fired at the u.n. team inside syria. >> their vehicle was deliberately shot at by
established international laws against the use of chemical weapons by further threatening friends and allies of ours in the region like israel and turkey and jordan. and it increases the risk that chemical weapons will be used in the future and fall into the hands of terrorists who might use them against us. so, i have said before and i meant what i said, that the world has an obligation to make sure that we maintain the norm against the use of chemical weapons. now, i have not made a final decision about various actions that might be taken to help enforce that. >> joining us now live from the region with the latest is leyland. >> tucker, obviously, this entire region is watching intently. there are a lot of scenarios where a u.s. strike could certainly spark a regional war. front page on one of the israeli newspapers probably says it the best. tense waiting and these folks are all lining up for their gas masks. there were thousands of people out in the streets yesterday lining up for their gas masks, all over israel. some got them. some did not. obviously, a long weekend and perhaps a scary
you. and thanks to you at home for staying with us for the next hour. there is a lot going on in the news today. >>> we're going to start here in new york city where the united nations has today called an emergency session to convene the security council of the u.n. on an emergency basis late today to respond to what looks like it may have been the largest chemical weapons attack in the world since saddam hussein gassed his own people back in 1988. and looks like is the key phrase here. it's hard to prove. it is hard to tell conclusively when chemical weapons have been used especially if you are trying to tell from a distance. in that iraq case it took four years for experts to confirm that chemical weapons were, in fact, used then. physicians for human rights is one of the first groups to get into the site. they collected soil samples and tested them. the soil samples did show trace evidence of the elements that sarin gas breaks down into over time. and with those soil samples they were able to conclude that saddam hussein had used sarin and also mustard gas, like from wor
in israel and around the region have waited almost with baited breath trying to see and think when the u.s. might strike. in fact, the newspapers here in israel probably have it the best the headlines here in hebrew now comes the tense wait people lining up for gas masks. people lined up yesterday to pick up gas masks in case president assad decides to make good on his threat to have tel aviv burn if he is attacked. obviously the syrians have a large chemical weapons stockpile which they could draw from if think chose a tack israel. not everyone got gas masks the u.s. military is also on high alert. missile defense system into position not only to protect the northern part of the country but tel aviv as well. the military has cancelled weekend leave for a number of essential soldiers saying they must remain on base and on alert. the israelis walking a very fine line between being prepared and also trying to keep the public from panicking. inside syria, we know the syrian military has used the past couple of days to move men, to move equipment, evacuate headquarters or anything they think c
for "the last word" with lawrence o'donnell, thank you for joining us, have a great night. >>> 50 years ago tonight, reporters filing stories on a demonstration in washington noted three things. it was peaceful, it was far larger than anyone expected. and a young preacher departed from his planned text. those unplanned sentences have never been forgotten. >> nbc news presents the march on washington. >> i have a dream. >> 50 years later, the dream lives on. >> it was in the middle of battles to break down the walls of apartheid in america. >> martin luther king jr. made a speech, but he also delivered a sermon. >> my father watched from the white house as dr. king and y thousands of others recommitted us to higher ideals. >> injustice is injustice everywhere. >> he gazed at the wall of segme segregation and saw that the power of love could bring it down. >> martin luther king jr. did not live and die to hear his heirs whine about political grid lock. >> the arc may have bent towards justice, but it doesn't bend on its own. >> for all who are willing to take the flame for justice, i know tha
the case for u.s. military action. horrific new video surfacing showing another -- another attack in syria, this time involving a school and an apparent incendiary device. and my interview this hour with senator rand paul. he questions the goals of a strike on syria and says the president should not act without the support of congress. we want to welcome our viewers in the united states and around the world. i'm wolf blitzer, you're in "the situation room." the united states government today declaring its high confidence that the u.s. did carry the devastating chemical attacks that killed 1,400 people, more than a third of them children. an intelligence estimate says the u.s. was able to track preparations by syrian chemical weapons personnel and the tomb firing of rockets. president obama today insisted he has not made a final decision on how to respond, but he also made it very, very clear the u.s. is preparing for what he describes as a limited military strike, even if the united states has to act alone. >> a lot of people think something should be done but nobody wants to do it. >> sec
. >> 50 years later, extraordinary. of course, also extraordinary events ahead of us. unfortunately, perhaps, our nation called into conflict again in the coming days. we'll talk about syria in a minute. we look back at this speech and rank this speech probably as one of the greatest in american history. it's easy to forget 50 years later that a lot of people didn't want martin luther king to deliver this speech including jfk who tried to get him to call the civil rights march and speech off. he refused and kennedy was left with no option but to support this speech and the rest, as they say, is history. >> it is. president kennedy watched the speech being carried live on the three television networks. his remark after it was finished was he is damn good. one master of oratory understood it. i would argue that what dr. king said today 50 years ago was the most important piece of american oratory from the gettysburg address through our own time. it redefined what it meant to be an american. it carried forward what jefferson started and what lincoln ratified and what king was urging us
decision, i will seek authorization for the use of force from the american peoples representatives in congress. for the last several days we've heard from members of congress who want their voices to be heard. i absolutely agree. >> and for the last several minutes we've been hearing more from members of congress, senators john mccain and lindsey graham, republicans released a joint statement saying while they do believe that syria's president bashar al-assad does need to be punished, they, quote, can not in good conscience support isolated military strikes in syria that are not part of an overall strategy that can change the momentum on the battlefield, achieve the president's stated goal of assad's removal from power, and bring an end to this conflict. democratic house member saying that it isn't enough to just have a vote, they need to have one now, he says. he's calling for the recess was just to wrap up until september 9th to be cut short, come back, vote now, he says. the president's plan to hit syria with military action clearly facing some real hurdles here in the united st

for staying with us this hour. happy thursday. there's a ton going on in the news right now. obviously syria and the possibility of the u.s. or the west, more broadly, taking military action against syria to punish them for allegedly using chemical weapons. that story is at the forefront of the news internationally, and it has been breaking quickly. new news about that has been breaking quickly over the course of the late afternoon and early evening tonight. so we're going to have more on that this hour with andrea mitchell. including the really quite brilliant debate some of our allies have been having about syria even if we, in this country, are not having an official brilliant debate of our own. >>> continuing reverberations from the 50th anniversary of the march on washington from august 1963. martin luther king's "i have a dream" speech. the conservative media in our country, mostly yesterday, tried to pretend that anniversary was not happening. they spent last night complaining bitterly there were no republicans on stage a the 50th anniversary event. republicans weren't invited. today
